the lobbyists who wrote it, but the american workers and small businesses who deserve it. unlike john mccain, i will stop giving tax breaks to corporations that ship jobs overseas, and i will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in america. [cheers and applause] i will eliminate capital gains taxes for the small businesses and the start-ups that will create the high-wage, high-tech jobs of tomorrow. i will cut taxes - cut taxes - for 95% of all working families. the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle-class. and for the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, i will set a clear goal as president: in ten years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the middle east. [cheers and applause] we will do this. washington's been talking about our oil addiction for the last thirty years, and john mccain has been there for twenty-six of them. tothat time, he's said no higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars, no to investments in renewable energy, no to renewable fuels. and today, we import triple the amount of oil as the day t
man has faced barack obama in a presidential campaign. we'll talk to sensor john mccain on the election and his effort to prevent steep defense cuts. capitol gains is back after the break. . >> you're watching capitol gains i'm peter cook. what matters most in washington right now the election of course. the $1.2 trillions in spending cuts at the end of the year that will be triggered without a budget deal. john mccain is a veteran of the campaign trail. i spoke with him and asked about his efforts to avoid the fiscal clip. >> everybody knows what the solution is. and that's set some goals. everybody knows that's the template for what we need to do. but nobody's ready to step forward so far. and i say as a partisan it does require some presidential leadership. the president's made it very clear that everything is going to be settled in docker after the election. those of us who have been around this town lame duck sessions don't do well. in fact they're usually disastrous. the only thing i think may happen. and i'm not an expert on this. but the markets may react as we g
of the most difficult moments. chris: a great john mccain at that moment. >> he had been flirting a little bit with the dark side. things were getting desperate in the campaign. he saw this kind of irrational anger that was coming out of republican audiences. he just couldn't go there. it was a moment of real honor. >> during the course of that election just after john mccain lost and he gave that extraordinary speech, do you remember in phoenix, a very gracious speech, the concession speech. i remember republicans saying that should have been the john mccain who ran. it was the same john mccain who took that microphone back and corrected the lady. [ female announcer ] now you don't have to give up. you can give in with dreyer's slow churned light ice cream. we churn it slowly for all the rich and creamy taste with just half the fat. so now you can have your ice cream and it eat it, too. you can give in with dreyer's slow churned light ice cream. we churn it slowly for all the rich and creamy taste with just half the fat. so now you can have your ice cream and it eat it, too. chris: welcome ba
where this morning republican presidential candidate john mccain introduced the world to his third wife. actually, no, wait, i'm sorry, that's his running mate, sarah palin, the freshman governor of alaska and star and producer of the emmy winning "30 rock." no, i'm sorry -- the star of the emmy winning "will & grace." no, i'm sorry, it's actually the mild-mannered yet troubled librarian from every cinemax movie. obviously. >> i'm up late. >> jon: so obviously, senator john mccain has made an enormous amount over barack obama's lack of experience. which seems curious that the 72-year-old four to five time face-cancer guy would choose a running mate whose resume appears to be more suited for a "northern exposure" reunion show. i don't know why that would be, so let's find out from governor palin. why? >> and, of course, senator hillary clinton, who showed such determination and grace in her presidential campaign. but it turns out the women of america aren't finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all. >> jon: yes. yes, i think something just shattered. whoa. obvi
. [applause] now let there be no doubt. the republican nominee, john mccain, has worn the uniform of our country with bravery and distinction, and for that we owe him our gratitude and respect. and next week, we'll also hear about those occasions when he's broken with his party as evidence that he can deliver the change that we need. but the record's clear: john mccain has voted with george bush ninety percent of the time. senator mccain likes to talk about judgment, but really, what does it say about your judgment when you think george bush has been right more than ninety percent of the time? i don't know about you, but i'm not ready to take a ten percent chance on change. the truth is, on issue after issue that would make a difference in your lives - on health care and education and the economy - senator mccain has been anything but independent. he said that our economy has made "great progress" under this president. he said that the fundamentals of the economy are strong. and when one of his chief advisors - the man who wrote his economic plan - was talking about the anxiety americans

[applause] and next week we'll also hear about those occasions when he's broken with his party as evidence that he can deliver the change that we need. but the record's clear -- john mccain has voted with george bush 90% of the time. senator mccain likes to talk about judgment, but really, what does it say about your judgment when you think george bush has been right more than 90% of the time? [cheers and applause] i don't know about you, but i'm not ready to take a 10% chance on change. [cheers and applause] the truth is on issue after issue that would make a difference in your life on health care and education and the economy, senator mccain has been anything but independent. he said that our economy has made great progress under this president. he said that the fundamentals of the economy are strong. and when one of his chief advisors, the man who wrote his economic plan, was talking about the anxieties that am
, maybe i didn't run a good enough campaign. maybe i wasn't strong enough. john mccain enters the no spin zone to talk about the personal toll of a presidential campaign. what it's like running against president obama and his relationship with sarah palin. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. hi, i'm monica crowley in for bill o'reilly. thanks so much for watching us tonight. let's get right it to our top story this evening. are you better off than you were four years ago. that question, of course, made famous by ronald reagan in 1980 has taken center stage in the to 12 presidential election. it's become a campaign corner stone for the romney ryan ticket. but the obama camp is struggling it to articulate a unified response. >> david, can you honestly say that the average american is better off today than they were four years ago? here is what i can say, chris, i can say we are in a better position than we were four years ago in our economy in the sense that when this president took office we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. >> you can honestly sa
that race. do you remember how john mccain won the presidential nomination? during the primaries in 2007, john mccain's campaign in the primaries just bottomed out. it was over. he laid off dozens of staff members. his fundraising collapsed. what was left of the campaign ordered up a recovery plan called living off the land, a plan for financial viability. it called for mccain to scramble for the free press for looking good in new hampshire where the campaign would work the press to convince reporters that john mccain was still in it. so reporters would write stories saying he was still in it. so he would seem like he was still in it when it was really all made up. but it worked. john mccain won in new hampshire. then he rolled out victories in virginia and kansas and on and on and he was back and john mccain won the the nomination after having been declared gone the previous summer. in the 2008 republican primaries, john mccain was a phoenix that rose from the ashes of the campaign he previously burned down. he came back from somewhere much worse than where romney is right now. at least
the nation's capitol we have complete analysis coming up. my one on one with senator john mccain and top lawmakeros both sides of the aisles. members of the intelligence services and foreign affairs committee. america's news headquarters starts right now. >> we begin with new information on the investigation of murders of four americans in libya. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live with those details . what can you tell us? >> an f.b.i. team assign to the murder of ambassador chris stevens and three others is lookking into whether the group of 100 attackers had inside help from the private security contractors whom the state department had hire to guard inside of the benghazi conflict. susan collins asked the national counter terrorism the question in a committee hearing this week. the state department hired blue mountain group out of wales to vet and hire locall guards. the contract was worth half a million dollars. indications that the local guards may have been casing the consulate were posted on a gaming website who said assuming we don't die tonight. one of our
four years later. >> if john mccain and governor palin can stand up there and attack barack obama and use false attacks on us we are going to call them on it. this is politics. it's time that john mccain and sarah palin start telling the truth. this has to do with john mccain the campaign hypocrisy on women. they are having a false offense onning putting lipstick on a big when john mccain doesn't stand for equal pie for women doesn't stand for children's health insurance thinks the economy is going fine where millions of children are going without healthcare. where is the offense of that? that is where the american people are offended by that. >> sound familiar? mitt romney and his wife receiving the attacks over women's issues having no issue of the former employers like ted kennedy and john kerry cutter led a crusade against president kennedy and mitt romney's wealth claiming he has broken the law. >> either mitt romney through his own worth and signature was misrepresenting his position to the fcc which is a felony or he was misrepresenting his position at bane to the american
. [applause] now, now, let me -- let there be no doubt. the republican nominee, john mccain, has worn the uniform of our country with bravery and distinction, and for that we owe him our gratitude and our respect. [applause] and next week, we'll also hear about those occasions when he's broken with his party as evidence that he can deliver the change that we need. but the record's clear. john mccain has voted with george bush 90% of the time. senator mccain likes to talk about judgment, but, really, what does it say about your judgment when you think george bush has been right more than 90% of the time? [applause] i don't know about you, but i am not ready to take a 10% chance on change. [applause] the truth is, on issue after issue that would make a difference in your lives -- on health care, and education, and the economy -- senator mccain has been anything but independent. he said that our economy has made great progress under this president. he said that the fundamentals of the economy are strong. and when one of his chief advisers, the man who wrote his economic plan, was talking
where americans declared him the winner over john mccain each time. you make your opponent out to be unbeatable, regardless of what is said, you can declare a victory of sorts. >> how are the candidates getting ready for the weekend? >> reporter: there is going to be a lot of studying going this weekend, mitt romney is going back to boston, actually you might remember he has been getting ready with rob portman, playing the role of president obama and portman took on the task of playing obama in 2008, helped john mccain during that time to prepare for the debates. mitt romney is using john kerry as a stand in, rather obama is using john kerry as a stand in and kerry has practice from his run in 2004. on sunday, obama is going to nevada where he is going to be practicing for the final three days. >> torey dunnan, live in washington, keeping an eye on the debate prep for us. in political news, throwing back a cold one may provide an insight in to how you will vote. the type maybe an indicater of your views. the study published claims republicans are more drawn to sam adams as far
presidential pick was sarah palin, a huge improvement for john mccain's numbers. and the final poll suggests she wasn't that positive for john mccain. yeah, there is a risk for mitt romney. down in tampa, everybody was speaking about the next generation within the republican party. they were speaking about paul ryan more than mitt romney. chris: we're among the greats right here. when we come back, "scoops and predictions" write from the notebooks of these top reporters. tell me something i chris: welcome back. john, tell me something i don't know. >> get back to joe biden in this debate with paul ryan. when biden debated palin, the big thing was the expectations were so high. we thought he was going to kill her. he had to worry about being condescending for her. it was a challenge for him. this is a new debate. he relishes the notion. he is the underdog. it goes back to the time when he didn't think he could beat bob bjork. he declined his clock. >> katy. >> there was the video on the life of mitt romney. it was incredibly touching, lovely pictures of ann and how they got married. most succ
mitt romney lacks is a compelling story. john mccain had a compelling story. barack obama has a compelling story. mitt romney's story of growing up in a life of privilege, going to prep school where he cut off another kid's hair -- you know, starting a business that became a successful business, that is the story. if we can find enough rouge -- >> john mccain had a war story. >> mitt romney was a rich kid with a lot of connections. >> mitt romney clearly has trouble talking about himself. not about his success in business, but himself, the personal stuff. so, as we said, bring out mrs. romney and friends. >> storybook marriage? not at all. what mitt romney and i have is a real marriage. [applause] >> as we say endlessly, mitt romney seems to be uncomfortable talking about himself in public. he will talk numbers all day long. talk about the salt lake city olympics, but he has a hard time getting people to look at the man inside the biography. in any other profession, that would be an attractive trade, but in modern politics, it is deemed a failure. what did ann romney tell you
had paul ryan there. he had to reassure the bases john mccain was trying. he also has this deficit of people who don't know him. he has been out there a good six years and still a big chunk of folks in surveys say they don't know mitt romney, even those ready to vote for him, to vote for an alternative to barack obama, and he did do a good job of making obama the center of attention, a referendum on obama. we know now especially now that medicare is on the table this is no longer a referendum on obama, it is a comparison. if obama hasn't done the job can mitt romney do the job any better? he did not make that case. people are saying he is well organized, a nice guy, still kind of comes off like i.e. makes don draper look like elton john, you know? he helped that image and his wife really helped him. >> mitt romney talks about his experience starting bain and the companies bain capital invested in. >> some of the companies we helped start you know and have heard from tonight. an office company called staples where i'm pleased to see the obama campaign has been shopping. [ applause ]
like john mccain said bonn from a plumber that question president obama >>> john mccain alluded to joe the plumber and that barack obama would share the wealth >>> that give matt cain a boost in the polls but as matt cain learned even a memorable debate moment carries a candid only so far. the live audience for the first debate expected to be about 60 million people, half the number expected to vote in the election. chip reid cbs news >>> a look of the debate scheduled the first to bed wednesday in denver, on october 11th vice-president biden and paul ryan will lock horns in danville, kentucky, then two more presidential debates and hampstead new york and boca raton florida. a new poll shows proposition 38 that would earmark funds for schools appears to be headed for defeat an l.a. times poll shows 34 percent of voters favored the tax 52% oppose it it will affect most californians the measures wealthy backer has spent $30 million on the campaign. a competing measure supported by gov. brown will raise taxes only on the wealthy doing better, proposition 30 supported by 35 percent of vote
. the republicans hark ens back to this guy john mccain is much more interested in what it is saying about us guys, americans. he was kind enough to join us right now. i knew you knew the ambassador very, very well. your thoughts right now? >> he was a lovely man. he loved his country. he served in a diplomatic war. he went to benghazi while the fight was still going on. came in on a cargo airplane and lived in constant danger until it was over. he moved to tripoli and set up our embassy there which was very rude amount terry. the libyan people liked and admired him. i can't tell you what a wonderful man he was, and i had the opportunity to spend time with him, including the day of the libyan election when hundreds of thousands of libyans celebrated and by the way elected a very moderate government. i can't tell you how sad and how much we mourn for his family. there is also sean smith and two others who have not been identified yet who also were sacrificed. >> you know senator the timing is weird and tashing this to rage over a movie on mohammed is weird. what do you think? >> i think it is impor
developments to those. senator john mccain, for whatever reason to stay irrespective of whichever party on november 6, he seems to see the striking possibility the fiscal cliff will be resolved the matter which man is elected. john mccain taking note governor romney has high unfavorables. how much more support like this can governor romney stand? >> the people who lose elections tend to offer some advice to the people in the subsequent cycle. look, here's the deal, fiscal cliff will be dealt with. how is a big question. even if we dealt retroactively have to wonder about the uncertainty. how that affects business and investments between now and january. the other thing is who wins have a great deal of influence on what the resolution will be. senator mccain is certainly right there will be something done, but what? it depends on what happens, it is true in the largest sense but senator mccain is not in an ideal position to offer advice to his follow-on as republican nominee. lou: we might even add unsolicited. as we look at what is happening here though, governor rahn emanuel is not any
day. that is one obama and john mccain made a joint appearance at a 9/11 memorial. what is the difference this time around? joining me now is stephen hayes. stephen, we know that they are not at this site together, but they could have gone together somewhere, right? >> yes, they probably could've done something. in 2000 it was john mccain who had some serious credibility on these issues and barack obama who was the young upstart end to measure himself against john mccain. that partially explain why they did this back in 2008. but this was sort of a half-truth today. gerri: do think that we're going to see this kind of tone continued for the rest of the day? for the rest of the week? >> no, it's done. you have david axelrod taking a shot. eager to get back to campaigning and whatever path they have for the day is going to be over and over in a hurry,. >> you mentioned that the twitter account of david axelrod talking, it would help to make his owner -- what do you make of that? >> this has been a case that obama campaign has been pushing about mitt romney for a long time.
an utter disaster and a lehman moment, a parallel to the moment when john mccain failed to come across as a steady leader. here is what nicholas burns told andrea mitchell. >> i was frankly very disappointed and dismayed to see governor romney inject politics into this very difficult situation. governor romney has n a very unwise way, injected himself in a situation where he clearly doesn't have all the facts. >> romney's statement did earn him this praise. >> today romney is the only guy looking presidential. romney is the only guy who looks like he understands what went wrong, what went right, and what shouldn't be happening now. he looks like he's the only adult in the room. >> republican congressional leadership chose not to join romney and instead chose to honor the dead. >> we honor the americans we lost in libya and we will stand united in our response. >> i'm going to ask that you all join me in a moment of silence. in tribute to ambassador stevens. >> joining me now, msmbc's john hiel man and washington editor at large for the atlantic, steve clemons. joy when your biggest fan
the alabaster musketeers showed that they were ready for the fight. >> you know, john mccain is my friend. >> the republicans in a few days will nominate a good man. he's served our country heroically. >> i've known and been friends with john mccain for almost 22 years. >> [bleep] on him without reservation, without qualification. what are you doing? may i offer you a sentence you will not hear at the republican convention? barack obama is heroic and american. >> let's compare senator mccain to candidate mccain. candidate mccain criticizes senator mccain's own climate change bill. candidate mccain says he would vote against the immigration bill that senator mccain wrote. >> yes! that's the stuff! who is this? who is this fast-talking, concise person? senator kerry. i wonder how senator kerry would fare against 2004 candidate kerry? >> it's one thing to be certain, but you can be certain and be wrong. it's another to be certain and be right or be certain and be moving in the right direction, or be certain about a principle and then learn new facts and take those new facts and put them to u
the overall race. i do not think sarah palin helped john mccain, but i do not think anyone he picked held that election. people are going to vote for the person who is going to be president of the united states. can the vice president held? yes, but i think we overblow it, thinking it is going to alter the broad base. -- broad base. tavis: what is your sense of whether there is an international issue that might change this race? >> i always say if something they have been in existence, and you live with that uncertainty. that being said, i do not think that winds up being a new issue for most voters. i would say if you look at previous elections, a foreign- policy rises to the back burner issue. only times of relative domestic tranquillity as the economy seem to be doing well. other times foreign policy does not make it to the back burner. doesn't matter a little biscuits? sure, but i think this election is about the economy first, the economy second, the economy third, and anything else to be honest. tavis: good to have you on the show. thanks for your work. >> it is always a pleasure. t
points. these are not implausible assumptions. mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points. could have to up to 36 points. that is if it does not change. d, ands does get realize if the white college graduates face about the same, it means that met romney would have to get north of 40 point margin of the white voter. let's take a look of where we are now. this is the gold standard. breaks. this shows that obama is leading by 8 points. if you look at the averages, it is a bit high. the averages are running about four points. you are probably up by five points. this is within the averages. it is similar to the pole from the heartland monitor which will talk about later. overall top line, a look at the margin, 91 points. that is basically identical. 7222 among 852 margin. most have been showing this. what this means is that the idea that obama could get 80% of the minority vote is quite logical based on these and other data that looks like what he will get. this shows you the break out for college graduates. , obama is doing a little bit better among white graduat
democrrtic &pexit polls from 2008 show 57% of white males voted for john mccain ... 41% percent for obbma. the latest numbers froo has slipped eight percentage points more with this group. has to increasingly rely on ma - voters who tend to beein his corner hispanic, blacc .... and young voters. and especially women.it was almost impossible for him to make a change in four years so i ttiik the next four years why not give him another channe see hat he can do for the middle class?i voted for president obama and i'll vote for him again. because i ddn't think ttat he's had enough time to correct the damage done by the republican party. i just feel that he needs the time. this coalitionnof voters holls the key to victory for president obama if he can persuade them to turnn out in big numbers and he sure is trying.i'm counting on you, (nats) i'm counting on you. i'mmcounting on you. if you are not registered to vote, then yyu've gotta go tt gotta-register-dot-com.that is with nascar voters who will overwhelmingly support mitt romney.(reporter: nascar enthusiasts more concerned about who wins
